10 cadets joined in the fun this weekend with an introduction to racing on the lake.  The cadet committee volunteers (Hannah, Hannah, Jos and Jon) gave a demonstration of what was involved, including Jon showing how to sail directly into the wind!

The first race had toppers first over the line, but on handicap the Optimists had the advantage.  The second race went much the same way which was followed by a break for lunch and a quick splash to cool down with.  

Two more races after lunch were closely competed with small differences in the corrected times.  

The results were

1st Ben Stewart (Optimist)

2nd Sophie Johnson (Optimist)

3rd Annabel Clark (Topper)
